SHOP STEPHANY AT ENSEMBLE
Responding to her fun, quirky and easy design language, Stephany Dsouza launched her eponymous namesake label in 2010. A design graduate, Stephany has managed to exude minimal understated luxury with her line of flowy ensembles. The Goa-based designer pays tribute to the land of sun, surf and beaches through her design aesthetics and comfortable clothing. Debuting at Lakme Fashion Week in 2013 with its Gen-Next programme, Stephany shot into the spotlight. Not long after, she showcased her collection at the Mercedes Benz Asia Fashion Week in Malaysia in 2014 that brought her international recognition.
After launching at Ensemble Kemps Corner post her Lakme appearance, Stephany has become a standing name in our contemporary merchandise offering. Available across all Ensemble stores and now our online avenue ensembleindia.com, Stephany has introduced a fresh take on resort wear to our stores. The label works for women of various ages and sizes and offers great options and silhouettes for those who are not afraid to add a little colour to their wardrobe. Expressing her affection towards Ensemble, Stephany says, “We have loved being a part of Ensemble for the last few marvelous years and are so grateful to have shared our journey with such an amazing team. Thank you for the love and for putting our label in such great company.”
Ensemble's merchandising team works closely with Stephany to ensure the most exclusive, premium and latest collections at the best prices, both for the online shop and our 5 stores across Mumbai and Delhi.
SHOP STEPHANY’S COLLECTIONS: FROM DRAPED SILHOUETTES TO FLUID RESORT WEAR
Stephany defines her design philosophy to revolve around draped fluid silhouettes in bold colours that are elegant yet remain comfortable. Elucidating her design sensibility, the designer says it’s the fabric which inspires her to create. The fall, feel and texture of the fabric guide her to play with creation, responding to the flowy silhouettes and adding eclectic cuts, drapes and detailed constructions through her pattern making skills. Experimenting with the ‘anti-fit’ concept back in 2010, when contemporary fashion was primarily about structured and fitted clothing, Stephany struggled to get acceptance for her brand vision. Nevertheless, she stood by her concept and continued exploring deconstructed anti-fit styles which have become the signature aesthetic of the brand. This philosophy has helped Stephany mark her niche in the Indian fashion industry.
Resort wear being the trademark for the label, Stephany excels in making fun and effortless dresses in this category. With its depth of construction, Stephany offers a wide range of dress categories ranging from a midi, maxi, gowns, mid-calf, halter neck, off shoulder, one shoulder, cinched waist and knot dresses. Alongside dresses, kaftans, jumpsuits and tunics with flared pants are also part of the label’s offering. With its flowy patterns and different style offerings, the label will have something that suits diverse body types. A signature one shoulder cowl dress of the label is famous for its perfect resort look, yet it also makes for an appropriate choice for a formal birthday dinner when paired with a waist belt and accessorized with vintage pearls. Playing with the luxurious fabric flow in her garments, Stephany mainly uses silk, satin, georgette, crepe and their respective blends as her fabric choice. A satin jewel tone maxi dress with a slit is a perfect option for a dinner date when paired with stilettos and metallic hoops. A draped front knot georgette tunic paired with flared pants will suit a woman of any age and is flattering for different body types; perfect for a poolside celebration or bohemian theme party.
A splash of colour being the telltale mark of the brand, Stephany plays with the colour wheel for her garments. Red, purple, blue, fuchsia, emerald green, burgundy, yellow, orange and their gradient tints act as the classic colour palette for the label across all seasons. For her summer range, Stephany also works with pastel hues of pink, grey, white, sunshine yellow, cerulean blue and lime green in georgette. Given its colourful spectrum and fluidity, Stephany is an appropriate choice for destination weddings and lighter functions. Identified with the solid colour constellation, Stephany also delves into techniques like colour blocking and tie dye from time to time to add freshness to its conventional design aesthetics. A tie dyed yellow kaftan is an appropriate choice for a brunch or casual summer day out with the girls.
Stephany has developed a loyal client base and has also dressed Bollywood celebrities like Neha Dhupia, Shibani Dandekar, Surveen Chawla and Tahira Kashyap. The label is known for its draped silhouettes, styling, colour scheme and innovative use of fabrics. Ideal for a summer soiree or a resort beach party, the label Stephany has its own luscious charm.
